Weekend Box Office Report: June 22-24, 2018

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom roars in first!

Dinosaurs ruled the Earth once again this weekend as JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM opened on top at the box office with an estimated $150 million!

The sequel from director J.A. Bayona (A MONSTER CALLS, THE IMPOSSIBLE) couldn't match the staggering $208 million opening of 2015's JURASSIC WORLD, which went on to a massive $652 million domestic total and remains the sixth-biggest release in domestic history.

The fifth entry in the JURASSIC PARK series debuted two weeks ago in international territories where it has swallowed a gargantuan $561 million, taking it to a current worldwide total of $711 million. (The first JURASSIC WORLD finished with a colossal $1.6 billion worldwide.)

The PG-13 follow-up, with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard returning to battle/rescue the great scaly beasts, cost a reported $170 million.

Critics were divided on revisiting the dangerous (and now exploding) domain of Isla Nublar, giving the sequel a 50% average on Rotten Tomatoes. You can bite into the JoBlo review HERE.

The anthology spinoff with Alden Ehrenreich wielding Harrison Ford's blaster has a worldwide total of $353 million (on a cost as high as $300 million).

R-rated horror movie HEREDITARY was in seventh place with $3.8 million for a domestic total of $35 million on its third weekend. R-rated blaxploitation remake SUPERFLY followed in eighth with $3.3 million, bringing the $16 million movie to a domestic total of $15.2 million.
